November 7th marked the birthday of the British-born Supermodel Jean Shrimpton who was born in 1942 and launched her career, aged 17, at the end of 1960 after being introduced to David Bailey by fellow photographer Brian Duffy. Initially for the years 1960-1964 Shrimpton became Bailey’s muse and partner and helped establish them both as leading players in the visual look of Swinging London. The Model Lives in Fashion Instagram account first featured Shrimpton in 2020 across 27 posts between the 7th and 30th November - visit the page and scroll down to view the set.
